theories. the obama administration wanted him out because of the benghazi staff. petraeus has a bit of a samurai warrior in him. i have done something dishonorable and now must make amends. i must take the consequences. you go and deal with it on your own time. get back to work. i think it would have shown some national maturity. why are we so interested in what happens in people's bedrooms? tavis: dianne feinstein from california is saying they will have hearings. is that necessary? how much uglier is this going to get? >> i think will blow over of tyrolese soon. something will come along to titillate the national interest. i think it is a tragedy. a guide to has given so much has had his name dragged through the mud. >> are the senate hearings necessary? >> you do want to hold hearings on benghazi. i do not think there is any sort of smoking gun. the benghazi thing is the republican equivalent of powerful marijuana. they just love it. i have friends in libya right now. it is a dangerous place. got it. i've also tried to figure out the combat situation. it is very difficult to figure ou

asked the u.s. to press for an end to the offensive. but the obama administration lined up with the israelis. state department spokesman mark toner said the u.s. believes israel has the right to defend itself. >> our position is clear that there's no justification for the violence that hamas and other terrorist organizations are employing against israel. and the onus is on them to cease their rocket attacks so that this de-escalation can take place. >> suarez: earlier, i spoke with the israeli ambassador to the united states michael oren to discuss the latest developments. ambassador, what's the latest from tel aviv? where the strikes accurate? have missiles actually hit the city and is anyone snurt >> thankfully nobody was hurt. the rockets struck in the greater tel aviv area. the alarms went off. the sirens, prime minister netanyahu was in the city at the time to a bomb shelter and now this simply means that 4.5 million israelis-- over half the population of the state of israel-- has come under rocket fire from terrorists within gaza >> suarez: does this represent a significant of

election. do you think he will come through on those promises? >> the obama administration did a lot during the first term to support renewables, and i would like to see them do a lot in the second term. that doesn't volve a lot of government money, but solar power has made huge strides in becoming cost-effective. i expect we'll make a lot more solar investment with the support of the federal government and the support of the state and local governments as well. >> susie: as you know, many of the tax credits and government support will be expiring very, very soon. and given the battles over the budget and the fiscal cliff, unlikely that they're going to renew these -- >> it is absolutely unlikely. we expect no more money from the federal government for solar power, but the cost of solar has dropped so much, and something that people haven't talked about, what is going to be the costs in terms of your utility bill to rebuild the power system. solar is now competitive with the retail price of electricity without government subsidy. >> susie: i would like to get your thoughts on this re

the obama administration guilty of a cover-up in the benghazi attack? >> the reason i don't trust her is i think she knew better and if she knew better, she should not be the voice of america. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, to be smartrip reputati -- to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous. >> they are talking about un ambassador susan rice, who could be the president's nomination to be secretary of state. they're talking about her appearance on talk shows on september 16 following the attacks in benghazi. charles krauthammer, our friend, is off this week -- i think he is in miami traveling -- has been hammering at this for weeks. he says it was up phony political cover story during the election. >> we don't know yet paid may be the intelligence commun -- don't know yet. maybe the intelligence committees have some notion, but we don't know yet. it seems like there were 85 things going on at once. i am not clear on what happened. >> according to some members of the h

first obama administration and the second, too. however, i would contend that in most of my conscious lifetime, this is the most coherent the democratic party has been. i mean, compared to the republicans. the republicans are falling part and in complete, you know, clan war. whereas, as you had the previous democratic incumbent being the most impressive advocate for this democratic incumbent. whereas the republicans can't mention the guy who was their previous incumbent. and so i think -- >> george w. >> george w., yeah, who just, you know, didn't come within 1,000 miles of the convention or wasn't mentioned in the speeches. so i think that the democrats, they do have these tensions. but at least they can have some sense of a majority party, which they hadn't thought of themselves as for a long time. being able to say, "okay, how do we address the basically progressive narrative we have that's not just tax cuts and it's not just the top 1%?" >> before this campaign began, i picked up and reread your book you wrote many years ago on the press called "breaking the news," right

governors who worry the exchanges carry daunting administrative costs and federal law regulates them too tightly denying states the flexibility to set up exchanges their way. many of them hoped they'd never have to make the call, but now that president obama has been re-elected the future of health care reform is more certain leaving some states scrambling. states who plan on building exchanges must opt in or out of the exchanges by december 14, along with blueprints for the project. states who plan to partner with the federal government have until february to give their notice. sylvia hall, "n.b.r.," washington. >> susie: next week on "n.b.r.," we'll have more on health care and look at which stocks will be the winners and losers as companies gear up for president obama's health care insurance mandate. how much do retailers benefit by opening early for those black friday sales? we'll find out if longer hours add up to bigger profits. and we look at ways investors are putting their money to work to better their communities. >> tom: with 45 days before the end of the year, lawmakers s
